The method I used for the red was nice and easy with a big brush. I undercoated it with red oxide primer. Then slapped a load of blood red on with the big brush, I let all the deep recesses stay as the red primer, it added shading. I then covered the whole thing in my custom mixed brown wash made from roughly 1 part brown dipping paint, 1 part water and 1 part acrylic mat medium to make it not glossy as washes sometimes go. I then just dry brushed the whole thing with blood red a couple of times.
I experimented with a way of painting rusty metal on the base. I first painted scorched brown, then a wash of watered down macharius orange, followed by a dry brushing of boltgun metal and finally mithril silver. I'm really pleased with the results.
If I do decide to make more I have an idea. I play to buy one kit and make to planes out of it by plasticarding the rest of the models. That way I'll get unique models. I hate using ork vehicles that look the same, its just un-orky, everything is meant to be bodged together and not mass produced. I might still decide to upgrade this one with scratches and rust spots but I quite like it as is at the moment.
